If you want everyone smiling in a wedding photo — especially young children — photographer Alexi Lubomirski has a trick up his sleeve.
It turns out that a hard-shell chocolate candy like M & M's, called Smarties overseas, was the trick to wrangling the youngest attendees, including Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, Today.com reported.

Candy also apparently worked magic on many of the grown-ups in the room.
"[The children] were being bribed with one Smartie here, one Smartie there," Lubomirski told Reuters. "So as soon as the kids came on to the set, I immediately just shouted out, 'Who likes Smarties?' and then everybody, hands up, smiles; even some adults put their hands up, so that was our magic word of the day."
Lubomirski, a Polish prince himself who now lives in New York and shot the couple's engagement photos, also made magic with the duke and duchess themselves in capturing less formally-posed shots.
